Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you want to get pregnant, it is important that you have periodic ovulation (egg release from ovary). The cause of irregular periods is often anovulatory cycles (cycles without having egg release from ovary). Consider discussing your pregnancy plans with your treating doctor/gynecologist and go ahead with a complete infertility work-up to look for the cause for the irregular menstrual cycles. Treatment would be started as needed based on the investigation results to help you get pregnant.
Take care.
